Hydrosols are a by-product of essential oil distillation, sometimes referred to as "flower-waters" but don't even get us started on how confusing that distinction can be! 
Basically, this is the drawn-off water from the steam distillation process, which contains many therapeutic benefits of the plant, and also smells AMAZING! 
You can use them as a light fragrance mist for your body or room, or as a facial toner, or you could even use them as the wetting agent for our powdered cleanser + masque!
